Hey! Nielsen uses social networking to get more accurate ratings…hmmm

20Sep07

Hey! Nielsen is a new opinion/social networking /rating community created by The Nielsen Company.  It’s taking community members opinions and ratings of TV, movies, music, personalities, and Internet and combining them with data from their sister sites – Billboard.com, HollywoodReporter.com, and BlogPulse.com – to gather the Hey! Nielsen score.  The Hey! Nielsen score gives users and important media mogul types an idea of what people are saying about what’s on TV, in the movies, etc.  Could this influence the powers that be to make 5 more seasons of Lost?    Who knows, but it’s still an interesting concept of how to use social networking to gather data.  Here’s my screencast tour of Hey! Nielsen:
